Paula Mejia

Hi, I’m Paula. I’ve been writing since I could pick up a pencil. My first published piece was at age six, and was a poem about my then-boxer puppy Bubbles.

Now I write for the likes of The New York Times, NPR, ELLE, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker and many others. I also edit, most recently for Red Bull Music Academy. I typically write about the arts, culture, the Internet, media and other ephemera, though my personal specialities include PJ Harvey, the X-Files, and figuring out how to press the world’s first record onto a wheel of cheese. 

My first book, about The Jesus and Mary Chain’s ‘Psychocandy,’ will be out October 2016 on Bloomsbury Press as a part of the 33 1/3 series. 

Get in touch regarding stories, pitches, questions, rates, job inquiries, if you want to give me free snacks, or if you just want to say hello.
